Sleep inducing

I mix Vetiver oil with lavender and cedar wood essential oils and make up my own pillow spray and roller ball to aid sleep. It really does work! It’s very relaxing and smells good.


Vetiver, Juniper, Patchouli, and a little lime with water. My perfect DIY spritz air fresner.

Came across this by accident….heavenly smell. Use it in my diffuser as learned that it is safe for dogs, and my GSD who suffers from anxiety, nods off into a deep sleep when I use it.

I was curious to know what this legendary scent was like. I did not know what to expect. And I find it very strange and very beautiful at the same time. It is clearly a high quality oil.
